Frankenstein's sister's circus of spiders

"CONTENTS of CIRCUS OF DEATH 4 Movie Pack:
CIRCUS OF FEAR-- A bank car robbery's haul is hidden at a travelling circus, which leads to a series of brutal murders. Not as scary as the plot indicates.
DIE SISTER, DIE!-- A man attempts to enlist the aid of his invalid sister's nurse in her murder. Nicely gothic atmosphere.
LADY FRANKENSTEIN-- After the death of Dr. Frankenstein at the hands of his "creature," his daughter and lab assistant continue the experiments with a brain transplant. Meanwhile, the original monster (portrayed by Paul Whiteman) is out for revenge against graverobbers.
WEB OF THE SPIDER-- Based on a Poe story. The author himself convinces a journalist to spend the night in a mansion where the residents die and reanimate almost at will. Nicely photographed goth atmosphere.
BRENTWOOD's 4-fers are nicely priced movie bundles. Video and sound quality of these digitally unrestored public domain films is generally fine. Discs are dual-side recorded.
TALES FROM THE BONEYARD is another frightfully good BRENTWOOD 4 movie pack.
